We are working hard to get ready for VBS (July 31 – August 4th). We also went on a camping trip to Smith Grove Campground. We went swimming, played games, cooked our food, set up tents (which actually stayed up), took turns leading devotions, and so much more!
We led our Annual Youth Service during the Sunday morning worship service! We were in charge of every part of the service including music, prayer, sermon, and much more! It is always great to give back to the congregation who gives so much to us!
We had a 30 hour famine lock-in at the church in order to raise money for World Vision. Altogether we raised a total of $1800. We played games, learned about people around the world who don’t have food, cleaned up a highway, and led a worship service for members of the congregation!
We cooked and served wonderful pancakes so that we could raise money for World Vision on our 30 hour famine journey!
We attended the Western PA UMC conference event “Spark”! We had a great time singing, worshipping, and hanging out and playing games! The speaker was Bob Lentz and the band was Sanctus Real!
